Award aims to recognise contributions to gender equality

IMO launches 2024 Gender Equality Award

INTERNATIONAL: The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) is inviting nominations for a new Gender Equality Award that will be presented for the first time in 2024.

According to a circular issued by IMO, the aim of the award is to accord an international recognition to those individuals, irrespective of their gender, who, either in their personal capacity or as representatives of their respective institutions, have made significant contributions to advancing gender equality and the empowerment of women in the maritime sector.

Nominations for the award must be received by 17 July of this year on the official nomination form which is attached to the circular which was issued at the beginning of this month. The presentation will be made at a reception to celebrate the International Day for Women in Maritime next year where the winner will receive a medal.

The IMO hopes that the award will encourage Member States, intergovernmental organisations, non-governmental organisations, the industry and persons working in the maritime sector to promote and adopt policies to achieve a working environment that promotes and provides equal rights to women.

Examples of potential actions include but are not limited to the adoption or promotion of measures and policies, regulations or legislation aiming at advancing gender equality, the promotion of positive change as role models, supporting education and training of women in the maritime sector, etc.
